The Winter Lemon Harvest

The Winter Lemon  Harvest at Miz Helen's Country Cottage
Three years ago I purchased 2 small lemon trees. The little trees were very pretty with green shiny leaves all over them. The instructions said to leave the trees in their original cans for two years then to transplant them to the ground. Now at the end of the third year, I have a harvest. I am so excited to harvest these lemons!

How To Grow The Lemon Tree
To grow lemons had been on my bucket list for some time and I was so excited to get two lemon trees 3 years ago.

The Lemon Trees lived in the house most of the time.
When the weather was nice we would move
 them to the screen porch.

The blooms were very delicate and we were careful
 to keep them in tact.

The fragrance from the blooms filled the whole house.

The directions told us to keep the trees in
 the original cans for two years, which we did. 
We transplanted the lemons trees in mid-august.
They had several green lemons on the trees
 when they went in the ground.

By October the lemons had begun to turn yellow, it was so exciting!

By November all of the Lemons had turned
 yellow and were so pretty.
On the 30th of December we harvested the Lemons.
 They are just beautiful!

I have never been so proud of a basket of Lemon's. I may never grow another Lemon nor have many Lemon's on my trees in the future.
There will never be as special a basket of Lemon's as these are!

Thanks so much for stopping by the cottage and walking in the garden with me. The garden is truly my happy place and I hope you find happiness in your garden!
Peace and Joy

  3. I LOVE THE LEMONS, TOO. WHEN WE WOULD VISIT MY AUNT IN LA AREA IN THE WINTER THE HOUSE WOULD HAVE A LEMON AROMA! IT WAS SOOO GREAT! I'LL BE ANXIOUS TO SEE WHAT YOU MAKE FIRST WITH THIS BEAUTIFUL HARVEST. HOPE THE COLD WEATHER YOU JUST EXPERIENCED DIDN'T HURT THE TREES.
    WE PLANTED TWO FIG TREES 2 YEARS AGO AND GOT ABOUT 10 FIGS FROM ONE OF THE TREES THIS LAST SUMMER. THAT WAS EXCITING AND THEY TASTED SO GOOD.
    I ALWAYS LOOK FORWARD TO SEEING THE ITEMS YOU POST.
